About the Instructor

My name is Stuart Roes, I am in my 5th school year here at VCTC. I enjoy teaching the skills used in this program because I have seen how useful they are in the real world. What keeps me driven are kids who work hard…and speaking of kids… My wife Jess and I have two of our own, Clifton and Cullen who we are trying to get out of diapers.  So, for me, teaching is a lifestyle 😉
